Celta Vigo vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Abanca-Balaidos (Vigo).
Celta Vigo are going through one of the toughest periods in the last five years at the moment. They are just not pulling up any trees in this term of La Liga.
A dreadful series of five consecutive league defeats saw them slide down to 18th place. They are two points away from safe zone and in huge danger of getting dropped down to second division football at the end of the season.
To make things worse for head coach Miguel Cardoso and his men, next up for them are 4th-placed Sevilla. The visitors are massive form favourites following a demolishing 5-0 victory over Levante in front of the home crowd last weekend.
Los Rojiblancos struggled to break the deadlock on the occasion, but it was a one-way street once their top scorer Wissam Ben Yedder unlocked the Frogs’ goal. Andre Silva, Franco Vazquez, Pablo Sarabia and Quincy Promes all added their names on the scoreline for a demolishing 5-0 victory at the end.
Celta Vigo vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Celta lead the head to head tie by one win, but Sevilla have a nice chance to make it all square at 15 wins apiece in this 36th H2H encounter.
Los Rojiblancos won four and lost one of past five meetings with Celta Vigo.
Each of last six head to head matches saw at least three goals scored.
Celta Vigo vs Sevilla: Prediction
The Sky Blues were way too easy to break down of late. They shipped two or more goals in all of last five league affairs. Celta now boast league’s second weakest defensive record (only Huesca shipped more so far in the season) with 36 goals conceded in 21 games.
This will be the music to the ears of Andre Silva, Wissam Ben Yedder, Quincy Promes & company who should really have plenty of space to deliver another high-scoring showing here at Balaidos. The away win looks to be a banker bet at 2.05, while you won’t make a mistake backing Sevilla to score two or more goals at 1.90 either.
